Super Aggregates to open a 510-acre quarry in Illinois

Super Aggregates has permission from the local council to open a 510-acre quarry off Pleasant Grove Road in Marengo, Illinois.

McHenry-based Super Aggregates plans to merge an existing 256-acre quarry to adjacent land to create Marengo Lakes LLC, a sand and gravel mining entity, reports the Northwest Herald.

Super Aggregates also plans to have space in the quarry for landscape waste and composting, dependent on an Illinois Environmental Protection Agency permit, company officials said.

City Council members voted to annex the property and give Super Aggregates the necessary special-use permits to carry out the plan.

Super Aggregates will pay the city 5 cents for each ton of gravel, sand and other products excavated or produced at the property.

The company projected that over the course of the agreement the city would take in more than $2.5 million at the 5-cents-per-ton rate.
